    Get paid to read email

    So in the past few weeks, alot of my friends have been spamming me about these getpaid to read emails and what not...upon visiting one of the locations that i was spammed, they said they would pay you out once you had 5k in your account.

    My point of this is? I just want to know what you think about these "services"...

    Have i signed up: Yes...curiousity killed the cat.

    What are your thoughts?

    Personally I'd stay away. It is more then likely almost impossible to reach the pay out level and think of how many friends you piss off getting there...

    lol, well, seeing that i signed up like a day ago, my account balance is sitting at 850 odd dollars...so i dont know... I am just trying it to see if they are for real or not...

    Hey, if i do get the cash, it'll be in Euros, meaning i can get abit more than 5k after you convert it to NZD :P ...

    If you have to recruit friends stay away. Although MLM (multi-level marketing) is the easiest way to make money, you will have to sell your soul and screw over every person you meet to get to sign up.

    yeah i know ... its really hard trying to convince the people to sign up since they're soo sceptical about these things...and i can't blame them. I'd be too.

    I dont know. I remember saying to myself that www.alladvantage.com (now dead) was fishy, till they paid me and a friend out...we got paid 460 USD... I was bloody amazed. And I was only like 14 yrs old at the time, so that meant, 460bux US = over 1k NZD of money at the time.

    so yeah. I guess its a matter of trialing it out and hope for the best .

    Oh yes, AllAdvantage. Looking back it's hard to believe that model actually worked.

    Why is it hard to believe?... I mean, with all these spams things, i suppose we could have like 2 email accounts. one for the spam and one for your normal everyday business?

    Im sorry my friend but any Paid to Read email that offer above $0.05 USD per email you have NO CHANCE of being paid by. They are well known scams. Sorry

    That is a joke. Older PTRs like AYS pays $50 when you reach that amount. yes, most of them are scams. You're just wasting you time reading these PTR sites..
